Join the #clrpoem Twitter Project!


Twitter is a wonderful microblogging platform to connect, share, and learn with others. You can learn a lot in 140 characters!

This #clrpoem Twitter project incorporates color, poetry, geography, social media, and fun!  

This week, we start the 4th annual colorful global collaborative project with classroom poets from all over the world. 

Teachers, you and your students are invited to join us for our poetry project! A tip of the hat to Catherine Monaghan for this colorfully clever idea.

The object of this collaborative project is to share original poems, create colorful digital images, and publish through classroom Twitter accounts using the hashtag #clrpoem! Each week a color of the visible spectrum will be showcased!


One way to remember the visible spectrum is the
 ROY G BIV acronym.  

(ak rÉ™ nim)
  1. an abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word

(*Indigo is the color between blue and violet. We will do purple that week.) 

Teachers, YOU are invited to join our 
collaborative project! 

The more, the merrier!

This week, we are seeing RED! Shoot a photo of something red, compose a little poetry to complement the photo, and tweet it out! Remember, use the hashtag #clrpoem. 

The first week will actually span TWO weeks  (April 3-April 14) because we will be on our spring break. This will give more time to kick start the project.

Here is an example Wrap Up :: What is Red? post from the past. It will give you an idea of the fun that is in store for your poets!  

What are some things that are red?

What are some elements of poetry? 

Couplet, triplet, or haiku,
What kind of verse can we expect from YOU?
